Rain From Ida, Recovery Aid To Louisiana, And Maine Needs Blood
We are getting rain today that is the result of Hurricane Ida that hit Louisiana earlier this week. It is hard to even imagine what those poor people are still going through. As often happens The American Red Cross has sent resources to aid in the recovery efforts from the storm there.
An emergency response vehicle from the organization’s northern New England region, which serves Maine, New Hampshire and Vermont, has motored down there and will be there for two weeks to help distribute food and emergency supplies.
Be Maine proud that volunteers have gone south to help in this situation.
Meanwhile back in Maine, The Red Cross continues to have a critical need for blood. What has happened as the pandemic continues, the number of people donating has gone down. Now that U of Maine is back in session, here is to an uptick in donors very soon. Not that we need incentives to donate, or shouldn’t, but FYI, anyone donating between tomorrow and the 7th of this month will receive a Red Cross campfire mug. Cool. Plus, for the duration of the month, coupons for free hair cuts at Sports Clips will be given to donors. So give a pint, and get a clip. Plus the mug.
